•  I Am Somebody

    Verra R. Chitty
    I am somebody

    And I want to be

    Not because of my color

    Just because I'm me.


    I must strive every day

    To be better to know

    If I'm to succeed

    I must work to grow.

    I do want to grow

    Not just in height

    I must sharpen my skills

    Start thinking right.

    I realize though

    I must prove my worth

    You get little for nothing

    That's the way on earth.

    So I'll strive for the best

    Then one day they'll see

    I am somebody

    Just because I'm me.
